Edmonton is a vibrant urban centre in the heart of the wilderness, the largest northernmost metropolis, and the capital of Alberta, Canada. Experience what 18 hours of sunlight a day feels like in the summer, or how the first snowfall transforms the river valley in winter. No matter the season, Edmonton is ready to host your next business event safely.
A globally-connected and energy-rich region, Edmonton is fueled by world-class health research, an emerging tech and AI hub, booming agriculture, food and manufacturing industries. By bringing your event to Edmonton, you’ll have access to leaders, experts, and innovators in these industries to create meaningful and game changing meetings and conferences.
Sustainable energy and initiatives have become a large part of the Edmonton culture. So much so that The City of Edmonton has developed a long-term plan to be completely carbon neutral by the year 2040 (I think we keep 2040 here as you're referring to the COE) The Way We Green is Edmonton’s promise to leave our city in better shape for the next generation. From farming honeybees and sustainable trade programs to socially responsible conference venues and expanding our public transit network, the city is working hard at sustainably contributing to our energy. Explore Edmonton is leading the way in Canada for their efforts in sustainable events and is the first City in Western Canada to join the Global Destination Sustainability Movement and Index.
Edmonton is also one of only twenty-two destinations in the Hybrid City Alliance. Together with other major destinations, Edmonton works to offer a simple, streamlined, and transparent approach to engaging with multiple locations for hybrid and multi-city events. Hybrid events are an excellent way to support any event's sustainability goals as we transition away from exclusively virtual events and towards more in-person events.
